El-Hadary announces he’s leaving Ismaily
Legendary goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary announced that he won’t continue his contract with Ismaily and will leave after this season ends.
El-Hadary did not mention his next destination but he confirmed that a few local and international offers were sent to him and he will be choosing the best of them by the end of the season.
“I made my final decision to leave Ismaily, I can not continue in such a depressing atmosphere. Everything is getting worse. May God be with the fans,” said El-Hadary in his comments to the press.
“It is impossible to continue in such circumstances, in addition to lack of ambition and spirit inside the club. I am happy to play for the Dervishes but I’ll leave the club by mutual agreement and end my contract,” El-Hadary confirmed.
The 42-year-old, whose contract extends for another year, revealed that there are a lot of conflicts inside the club in addition to the struggles between the players’ agents and the board, injuries, suspensions and bad luck.
“Tarek Yehia works in very bad circumstances and endures a lot for the sake of the team’s success,” he added.
El-Hadary praised Ismaily fans and thanked them for their constant support assuring them that he will be playing the remaining matches with the utmost determination to make them happy and leave a good impression before leaving.
“I have never seen fans who love football as much as Ismaily fans do, but circumstances were tough. I apologize to them and to the club’s president, Mohamed Abou El-Seoud, for not being able to continue with the team,” El-Hadary concluded.
It is worth noting that El-Hadary joined Ismaily from Wadi Degla at the beginning of the season after he signed a two-year contract with the club.
